Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Squares

  • BreakfastporkRecipe
  • This casserole is so quick and easy to put together and it’s a spin off of another sausage breakfast casserole that has been a family favorite for a few years. We are currently snowed in right now and Chris is at home so I wanted to make something scrumptious for breakfast. I don’t have any cream cheese so I improvised.

    Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Squares

    Interested but not convinced? Well the crescent roll dough on top and bottom make these taste like sausage, egg and cheese biscuits! Yeah, I thought that would do it!

     
     

    Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Squares
    adapted from my sausage cheese squares
    makes 16-20 squares
    1 lb hot ground turkey or pork sausage {OR 1 lb sausage + 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper}
    6 eggs
    3/4 C skim milk
    1 1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    2 cans crescent rolls, {regular or reduced fat}

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook sausage in a skillet. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat eggs together with milk, and add salt and pepper.
    Line a 9X13 baking dish with one roll of crescent dough. Pour sausage and 1 C of cheese on top. Pour egg mixture over sausage and top with remaining 1/2 C of cheese.

    Top with remaining roll of crescent dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and egg is cooked through. Remove from oven and let sit for a few minutes before cutting into squares.

    This is the perfect brunch dish. The eggs cook up and are fluffy but not over cooked. It would also be great on Christmas morning or a special family weekend.
    The flaky crescent roll dough on top is the perfect quick crust for this easy breakfast casserole.
    This was the perfect breakfast to whip up on a snow day. Warm, savory, comforting and delicious! Thank God for sausage, and for snow days! :)

      This looks great! I’m not a big fan of egg casseroles with bread so this is right up my alley!
